Amy & Bill,
We want to say thank you for allowing us to help take care of your father towards
the last few years of his life. Uncle Tom was a big part in our lives and we thank
him for all the goodies he always brought over.
We are very proud of both of you in the end. You both had a very loving father
that has touched a big part in our children's lives and we want you both to keep
that love for children that Uncle Tom had. We will miss him greatly but know he's
in a much better place now.
Cousin David, Cousin Jen, Jamica, Anthony, Ethan & Cody
